    Let's have some fun

    I propose an idea that I think (or at least hope) many of you will like. I think we should start coding competitions. Stay with me here, this idea comes with a plan.

    First we start a thread for programming ideas and we set a deadline to have all of the ideas in to be voted on. Then we create another deadline to have all of the votes in. Finally the last deadline will be for the final creation and scoring will be based on the following factors:

    - Ease of use
    - Performance
    - Stability
    - Overall Features
    - Graphical User Interface

    All scores will be rated from 0 to 20 to give a final combined score of 0 to 100. All scores could be kept track of using a basic polling system. If things get interesting and it gets big enough possibly donations could be gathered and distributed amongst the winner(s). What do you guys think? What would you pick as an idea for the competition?

    Hm...

    Have you checked well-known coding competition resources before trying to invent your own?

    You are going to judge results manually? Each of voters should download everyone's solution and make some decisions about its "performanse", "ease of use" and "stability"? Especially regarding money prizes...

    For having posted on a "webdeveloper" website I thought the entire idea implied that all of the security and actual ability of this idea becoming a reality has already been thought of. I only need to give the basic idea because I want feedback about it at this point. To be honest I could probably handle all of the technical coding behind the thing myself while feeling comfortable having it scrutinized. PayPal is a known secure method of collecting money over the internet and could be worked with fairly easily. Anyways I have not seen one decent JavaScript-based programming competition and overall think that there are not enough web-based programming competitions out there.

    i think the criteria are too subjective. performance is the only objective measurement there, and that's vague itself: certain apps do better on certain browsers than others

    if you had targeted contents like "fastest getElementsByClassName() in IE7", that's a lot easier to get behind than investing time on something others might not like.
